Reports from police indicate that an LMPD cruiser was stopped at the stop sign on 30th Street. The officer was unable to see past a pickup truck, which was parked along the side of West Market Street. As a result, the officer pulled their vehicle out into the intersection where it collided with a dark-colored sedan.
